Some specialized systems and servers, such as Microsoft SharePoint, include their own logging systems that produce cryptic activity data making them essentially unusable to IT administrators. However, innovative log management solutions can capture, process and “translate” native logs from specialized systems and turn them into meaningfully events enabling administrators to analyze activity information that they would otherwise not be able to access and providing them with a comprehensive view into what is happening across their networks.

In today’s economy, small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are constantly looking for ways to save money, yield maximum potential from deployed technologies and, ultimately, “do more with less.” One way they can accomplish these goals is by taking advantage of a log management solution.

At their core, log management solutions enable companies to monitor and analyze all kinds of activity happening on their networks. But what does this activity mean? And how can it be used to secure corporate networks, protect sensitive information, increase compliance and deliver business value? GFI Software, a leading provider of IT and security solutions targeted at SMBs, has compiled a list of five unique ways SMBs can use their log management solution and the activity intelligence it provides to get the most out of their technology investments.
